How Laser Acne Treatments Work
Acne Laser Treatments by Aerolase is a method of acne treatment that uses unique laser technology to gently deliver powerful energy for quick, side-effect-free results. The laser energy destroys acne bacteria and reduces inflammation to control your current breakouts while inhibiting sebum and oil output to lessen the likelihood of future breakouts.
In addition, it helps to generate new collagen, which diminishes any acne scars. The treatment is followed by a CellLuma treatment to help reduce inflammation and promote healing. Our unique treatment leaves your skin looking clear, healthy, and amazingly radiant.
Active acne, inflammation
Dead skin cells and excess sebum cause pores to become blocked. P. acnes bacteria then begin to build up in the excess sebum, causing infection, inflammation, and, ultimately, acne.
The laser light excites P. acnes-produced porphyrins to produce singlet oxygen, a cytotoxic intermediate that destroys P. acnes bacteria.
Deep-heating, high power from the laser heats up the sebaceous glands, thus reducing their size and suppressing output of sebum.
The coagulation of blood capillaries in inflamed lesions blocks the inflammatory response and reduces pressure on the surrounding tissue, decreasing pain and erythema.
Water-based laser energy absorption in the deeper dermis causes collagen remodeling, resulting in improved skin texture and a reduction in acne scars.
The pore unblocks. The sebaceous gland shrinks and sebum output is reduced. Inflammation and redness are alleviated. The skin becomes cleaner and smoother.
